The Benelli Leoncino 800 is a road-going model, while the Leoncino 800 Trail is off-road-oriented. They offer a single-piece seat, a side-mounted exhaust, all-LED lighting setup, and are available in three shades, namely Gray, Green, and Brown. The Leoncino 800 rides on 17-inch alloy wheels, while the Trail variant sits on 19-inch front and 17-inch rear steel spoked rims.
The Benelli Leoncino 800 and 800 Trail run on a Euro 5-compliant, 754cc, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, twin-cylinder engine that generates 76.2hp of power and 67Nm of torque. The mill is linked to a 6-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch.
In terms of safety equipment, the Benelli Leoncino 800 and 800 Trail are equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for improved handling on the roads. Suspension duties on the motorbikes are taken care of by 50mm inverted forks on the front side and a preload-adjustable mono-shock unit on the rear end.
In the UK, the 2022 Benelli Leoncino 800 carries a price-tag of £7,499 (around Rs. 7.16 lakh), while the Trail variant sports a price-figure of £7,799 (roughly Rs. 7.45 lakh). They are unlikely to arrive in India.
